Trelleborg Wheel Systems is a global supplier of tyres and complete wheels, for agricultural and forestry machines, industrial and construction machines, and other material-handling equipment. Trelleborg provides highly-specialised, bespoke tyre and wheel solutions for its customers.
CSG Talent were approached by Trelleborg's newly appointed Managing Director, who required a bespoke recruitment campaign to fill several different positions.
The new MD was running a complete internal restructure, moving the company in a new direction to keep up with the market’s changing priorities. This restructure encompassed the entire business – from Operations to Senior Management – and as such, opened up with it a host of new positions.
A Difficult Recruitment Project
CSG's Director of Automotive, who has been working in the tyre market for over 13 years, was the lead consultant for Trelleborg’s assignment. With an extensive network of quality candidates working within this sector, he was quickly able to shortlist numerous suitable candidates for the roles of:
- Sales Director
- Business Development Manager
- Sales Area Manager
- Marketing Manager
- Tyre Technician
- Purchasing Manager
- Operations Manager
Ensuring that the best talent was sourced for these positions was essential, especially given the senior ranking of each of the roles. It was a difficult recruitment project; most positions had a very small talent pool available, with limited candidates existing who could effectively perform the duties of each position.
One role, for example, had such specific requirements, that only one candidate in the country possessed the necessary combination of skills and experience. CSG was able to find and recommend this candidate, with whom Trelleborg’s owner was so impressed, that he travelled personally to meet them to try and secure them in the role. The candidate went on to accept: CSG was able to source, and place, the perfect candidate for the job.
A Lasting Partnership
Having built up a strong working relationship with Trelleborg’s MD, and having successfully placed several major roles within their company, CSG work effectively as a recruitment partner with Trelleborg.
With ongoing success, CSG Talent having a deep level understanding of Trelleborg business structure, culture and the calibre and skill set of talent, CSG will continue to support Trelleborg with their talent acquisition and hiring strategies.
